Please note that this year’s trip to Sheffield has unfortunately been cancelled. This is due to a number of factors…
1. The date coincides with the first District Regional Program weekend.
2. Lindsay will be attending this DRP weekend.
3. Several Rutherglen swimmers who would normally have gone to Sheffield are likely to be attending the DRP weekend.
4. The number of swimmers registering an interest in Sheffield this year was considerably down on previous years and so likely to increase the financial burden on those fewer swimmers.
An alternative trip may be considered and if so will be communicated in due course. In the meantime all deposits will be returned.

Thanks to everyone for the cakes and wee surprise on poolside last night for my 60th Birthday. That was last Friday, however I thought I had quietly taken the night off as Pam, leigh and Neale took me to Carluccio’s in Glasgow. Sadly the Rock concert in Berlin didn’t quite work out, Italy next time J
